More money troubles are following celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, as he has now been forced to shut down The Devonshire Pub in West London. It is merely one of 4,000 pubs that have closed since 2008.

The Devonshire opened in 2007 as a "gastro pub," yet failed to impress critics even upon its grand opening. Now after three years, Ramsay, along with business partner Chris Hutchinson, has shut the pub's doors due to the recession and "failed business expectations." This closure only adds to the £4.5 million loss filed by Gordon Ramsay Holdings last year.

Interestingly, the pub was one of four restaurants revealed to have served ready-made fare to its patrons -- especially interesting since Ramsay is well-known for his emphasis on freshly prepared ingredients.

A spokesperson representing Gordon Ramsay Holdings says that the company is undecided regarding the building's future. "It could be that they do something else with it, they may sell it or add someone else to the lease -- there are so many different options.”
